Kip’s “Plot Twist” Medical Costs Fund

To begin, I want to apologize to my friends and family for whom this may come as a shock. The diagnosis was confirmed just this last Thursday, July 3.

There is a saying "When something goes wrong in your life, just yell 'Plot Twist' and move on”. As many of you know, when crap goes south, I tackle it! However, things are a bit out of my hands right now and I need a little help from my friends.

For over 10 years now, I have been feeling bad. I have seen dozens of doctors and have had hundreds of tests - with no relief. I recently I saw a new doctor whose extensive testing uncovered why I have felt bad all this time.

I have a disease called "hyperparathyroidism."

I am in immediate danger of heart attack, stroke or kidney failure.

The GOOD news is this disease is easily and immediately curable - I repeat, immediately curable! - with surgery!

Since I have no trust fund, husband, or meth lab, I am suckin up my pride and turning to YOU.

Without your generous help so I can have the surgery, this disease WILL kill me.

I am going to the Norman Parathyroid Center in Tampa, Florida, for the surgery - the most experienced parathyroid surgeons in the world!

My IMMEDIATE need and request is for $16,000 which will go towards the hospital stay, labs related to surgery, surgical team, and room and board for recovery. (Good ol' ObamaCare MAY cover only a small percentage of the entire costs.)

My goal is to have funds collected and ready by August 1 so I can schedule my surgery.

For those of you who don’t know me, my friends will attest I have total joy of life! I surmount every obstacle with purpose, meet every challenge head on, create my way in this world, and try to be the best friend I can. I will not let this condition go untreated! I will find a way – somehow.

Please consider making a donation to help me with these medical costs and out of pocket expenses.

If you aren't able to donate, please give with your prayers and positive thoughts.

No words can adequately express my heartfelt gratitude and thanks for your generosity. You will never know how much this means to me. Truly, my life depends on it!

Please feel free to pass this along to your Facebook friends, Twitter followers, and anyone else. All help is greatly appreciated!
